Thu, 2015-06-04 20:00
Spring-cleaning doesn’t always have to be throwing away unwanted items. In fact, the CWU Center for Leadership and Community Engagement (CLCE) would rather they be donated instead. As part of their Don’t Waste, Donate program, the CLCE is graciously accepting donations of unwanted items and non-perishable food Monday, June 8 through Friday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) East Patio.
Through this program, the CLCE gathers donations and redistributes them through the CWU Campus Surplus facility, which holds auctions throughout the year. All monetary proceeds generated will go directly to the Friends in Service to Humanity (FISH) Food Bank, in addition to any non-perishable food item donations.
For more information, please contact the CLCE at 509-963-1850 or
